require or requires?
I use both require and requires in the sentence below and they both come up correct. How can that be?
Preserving and growing wealth across generations require planning, unbiased advice and highly disciplined investing.
I pesonally incline toward using 'require' because 'preserving wealth' and 'growing wealth' ARE not the same things. I don't see how the subject here could also be viewed as having a head noun 'wealth' with two participles as adjectives. We have two different actions here, so 'require' would make more sense, in my opinion. For those who see this as a single action 'requires' sounds good too.
